Makes perfect sense. fwiw I miss the "ugly" look, too, but enjoyed We Are the Best!. More Moodysson is better than no Moodysson. Will seek out the series if it ever jumps the pond.

Cannes: Lukas Moodysson to Direct 'Together 99,' Sequel to 2000 Crossover Dramedy
The Hollywood Reporter

Gustaf Hammarsten returns to star in the sequel to 'Together,' which looks at the members of the first film's Swedish commune, 24 years later.

Lukas Moodysson is heading back to the commune.

The acclaimed Swedish director will mount a sequel to his 2000 crossover hit Together, a dramedy set in a Swedish commune in the 1970s.

Together 99 is set 24 years after the events of the first film. The once-thriving community Together is now the world's smallest commune, consisting of just two people: Göran and Klasse, played by Gustaf Hammarsten and Shanti Roney, who reprise their roles from the original film.

Feeling a bit lonely, Göran and Klasse decide to get the old gang back together for a reunion.

"Together 99 will be the world's saddest comedy," Moodysson said. "It's about getting old, looking back, regretting everything you have done, or regretting nothing, lying awake at night missing someone you have not met in 20 years, longing back, looking forward. And about the collective: [are] the dreams from the seventies alive or are they dead? And does Göran still eat porridge?"

Memfis Film will produce Together 99 in co-production with SF Studios and Film i Väst. Shooting is set to start in August. SF Studios will distribute the film in the Nordics, with REinvent handling international sales. Together 99 is expected to premiere in 2023.

I was so into this guy's films in high school. Together, yes, but Fucking Amal and Lilja 4-Ever (which dvd release led to my purchasing a region free player for the first time) in particular. Don't think I've watched those in 15+ years, and pretty sure I haven't seen any of his subsequent efforts.

Perhaps I'll do something about that.

I rewatch Fucking Åmål regularly. Definitely worth it! Together too is awesome.

Container is the one I need to watch. Heard both good and bad things about that one
